OK it's not clear what you are doing. If Sum(NZ([Column Name],0)) is the expression for the main report total where is [Column Name]. If it is in the subreports then this will not work.

Have you the same expression in the subreports? You will need to give a lot more information before anyone can help I'm afraid.

Sum(NZ([Column Name],0)) is the expression for 1 of my subreports.Use of the Nz function is to set 0 for the grandtotal but still this expression shows me Error..

Becoz of this subreport I m getting Error for total grandtotal in my Main Report...What expression should i use in the subreport & in the Main Report so that i don't get the Error for the Grandtotal in my Main Report

If it is showing an error then there is something wrong with the values in the column you are trying to sum. Check the data type of the column and make sure it is set to numeric type.

There is far too little detail in your question to be much help (Access is more of a science than an art. You need to be precise with your details) but see if this link (Referring to Items on a Sub-Form) helps.

I don't know if you've noticed, but you've been told on a number of occasions already that you have not supplied enough information to work with. Your latest post is a further example of providing almost nothing. Please consider what you can do to help us to help you. As it is you appear to be doing very little, in which case we can only assume you don't care very much about the problem.
